Slide vs. negative vs. digitalSummary: an in-depth look at negative film versus positive film and a short comparison with digital cameras. I discuss differences and main characteristics of all three from user's point of view. Very short technical background is also included to improve understanding.Slide vs. negative vs. digital by blushark
Many film shooters have one same basic dilemma - do you choose slide (positive) or reversal (negative) film? What's the difference and why would you pay more for something you're not even sure is right for you?
Most know the obvious difference you can see by just looking at the shelves in your photo lab - slides are more expensive to buy and develop and also for every 20 labs that develop reversal films (C-41), there is only 1 that can also develop slide film (E-6).
So you may wonder, like I have back in the day, why would anyone (who can do without projecting their vacation slides to bore their friends and relatives) choose slide film over simple, cheap, hassle-free negatives?
